What are my chances of being pregnant?

I missed one pill on Wednesday the 6th of this month. I took 2 pills on Thursday the 7th and had the nexplanon put in on the same Thursday. I have been on track for the rest of the time. I though had unprotected sex on Sunday the 10th. I freaked out and took the morning after pill on Monday the 11th. What are my chances of being pregnant? I feel weird or maybe I am making a mountain out of a molehill. Weird meaning I feel sick and bloated, tired and everything else.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Because you took emergency contraception, your risk of pregnancy is slim to none. Just how much it reduces your chances of getting pregnant depends on which kind of emergency contraceptive you use and how quickly you take it after unprotected intercourse.

Be well,
